. he kind of cleaned john boehner squat in terms of taxes and revenues. it was all tax increases. $15 million in spending cuts. republicans have to get their acts together to negotiate better on the debt ceiling and other things. neil: what is the overture on the republican party? saying that they are going to push for a three-month extension? >> sure, what i read in it was from a pr standpoint in saying that gets all is a bad idea and will hurt the economy. and for economy a year and a half ago. republicans are saying that maybe it's a smart move in the sense that they want to say enough of this pr stunt. let's take the falls off the table but let's get to the real essence of spending cuts. the president is going to keep coming back. but it's more revenue. but it's more tax increases. we knew that in the campaign. neil: there is this paraphrase between the rich and the poor that you alluded to. maybe he has not done this. >> i don't think he is done on more tax increases. neil: more deductions? >> deductions and perhaps more rate hikes. this was alluded to during the fiscal cliff tal

was interested in 2011, almost got a deal with speaker john boehner on a grand bargain on entitlement reform, crafting a budget now. i don't think you're going to see major cuts in that. it's a significant shift. remember, obama said the deficit kept his awake in the first term. through his actions, you know, he's not pursuing a lot of cuts and changes to entitlements. liz: what is feasible for the president to get through with a window of 16 months? gun control? what do you think he can push through successfully? >> well, i think he will try to push through gun control, and they are starting right away, and i know biden is in virginia trying to sell the plan, but i think that what's clear is that the president's agenda and the american people's agenda are different. it's expwressing to see that the president is tackling those issues that are at the very bottom of the public's priorities. climate change, gun control, and even infrastructure. these are not changes that the american public wants. they are asking for real economic growth, job creation, tackling the budget in a sensible way beca
at that throughout the last four years of president obama's term. remember now john boehner and president obama had a deal the first time, the first time with a the debt ceiling 600 billion dollar number they came to and agreed to john boehner went over to the white house and ready to sign the deal and president obama said, no, make it 800, and moved the goal post and the mouse democrats say we'll punt this, kick the can down the road until april, the debt ceiling, let you raise the debt ceiling and violate the things we promised we wouldn't do to the people that elected us. in return, you guys, senate democrats come up with a budget and you haven't passed one in 1300 some days. chuck schumer says i'll make a deal and take you up on the offer guess what, in the new budget we're going to tax more, tax all you people to agreed to the deal that they just came to january 1st, that deal is done we'll keep that and give another, another bite of at that apple. stuart: this is a financial issue. it's a budget issue, so they need a straight up or down vote in the senate and the democrats have a majority in
to bring us together. >> house speaker john boehner is meeting with the house republican conference right now. according to a source in the room boehner is calling for the republican party to present a budget that balances the federal budget in 10 years. given where democrats and republicans have been on that issue, republicans against any type of increases in taxes you can imagine all that would come through spending cuts and not be all that acceptable to democrats on capitol hill. so recall tore there will be a vote in the house to extend the debt ceiling until may 19th. that is contingent both houses of congress passing a budget. something that senate majority leader harry reid said is a big step forward for republicans. they're not calling for any spending decreases in this debt ceiling increase. the white house put out a statement said it would not oppose a short-term debt deal though neither getting real specific whether or not they would actually agree to what the house is hoping to pass tomorrow. back to you. david: rich, reading through that, frankly didn't take too long to read
for reigning in that spending. >> well, and i think so, and this is where speaker boehner has the perfect opportunity to change the narrative by forcing everything through regular legislative order. you control what goes to the floor. don't reauthorize programs. i would love to have the nation debate the question, should we not reauthorize americorp or cut the marine come. they'll ask what's americorp? what's it do? the speaker can start the process if he has the discipline to adhere to regular order and exercises his control -- neil: running with their tail between their legs, running scaredded, lost the election, doesn't mean they lost the backbone or resolve or whatever used to be in their dna that showed some discipline. they lost that now, and seeded it to a president who talked up entitlements in the speech, talked the merits of government spending, strongly as ronald reagan did, the dangers of government spending, and these might be new times. how do they challenge them? >> well, again, i think they challenged them by getting back on to the floor, get a budget, force a budget to be
, and the senate and the house putting a budget together. john boehner said his budget republicans will release shortly will balance the budget in 10 years. david: rich edson, one of the best reporters i know in washington. we are awaiting the numbers on apple. the stock is about 30% off of the all-time high in fall. could we see the earnings decline for the first time in almost 10 years? keep it right here, a very important our coming straight up. sandra: seaway president of iceland is against big bank bailouts. ♪ (train horn) vo: wherever our trains go, the economy comes to life. norfolk southern. one line, infinite possibilities. sandra: you think our ranking crisis was ba back in 2008? it was, but imagine iceland. their three against banks failed. they just failed, the banks of the same leveraged that our state of the governments took the opposite approach of the u.s. so did the world end? hardly so, david. david: the world economic forum with a leader who had to make that tough choice. liz: david, the world hardly froze up and ended for iceland. sure, they had majo have major , 10% unemp
. >> it was a good move by boehner and the republicans to float on new year's day, they said, for now we'll agree to these tax increases but we're going to wait. we'll try to make our move a little later when we get more information to what it would really mean to make the bluff. their float turned out well because they decided before it came to a head their big bluff wouldn't work and came up with a best plan. melissa: you talk about who the best rail bird is. the person doesn't participate in the game but sitting on the side commenting. you say it is bernanke. i think it is me. that is all we do here. we're the ultimate rail birds. my whole job is built on being a rail bird. i sit on the sidelines -- >> fox business is definitely would be the best rail birds in all of this. i think you have a very good case to make for that. melissa: what advice wod you give to republicans because you're a championship poker player? they seem to have a weak hand but there is always a way to win so what would you tell them? what should they do? >> well if i were playing this hand as kind after long-term strategy
. secondly, as you know, back in the good ol' days when boehner and the president were trying to strike a grand bargain, he was putting social security on the table even though a lot of people in his party weren't too keen about that. david: you know, we hear about spending cuts. when we look at spending, if we could put up the chart that we have of spending from 2008 to 2009, right up until 2012. of course tween we see that big increase of about $600 billion. that was because of that special stimulus thing. >> right. david: then we see the level about the same. i mean the stimulus never stopped. we hear a lot of talk about, oh, yeah, in the future we'll have a spending plan that will cut spending but the actual spending has not reduce. we should mention by the way, you were with the clinton administration when they really did cut spending but we're not seeing the actual cuts now. >> we're seeing a little bit of it. it has come off the top and there's more promise down the road. finally, to your main point, really, which is, that there hasn't been enough in total yet. and that's true. t
reid says the senate will pass it. >> i thank speaker boehner for his leadership in diffusing a fight over the debt ceiling debate. >> now the white house says the president will not stand in the way of this bill becoming law but they are seeking a longer term debt ceiling solution as are democrats and republicans. the problem is, how are you going to do it? republicans say they will come out with a budget that makes sure the balanced budget occurs in the u.s. by the next 10 years, but they say they don't have to raise taxes to do it. democrats are still looking for increased tax revenue. they say the spending cuts republicans want are too deep. we have put this off for a few months, if indeed it does pass the senate and goes onto the white house and become law we still have the major fundamentals differences in budgeting between democrats and republicans and we'll have to deal with that here in d.c. in the next few months. back to you. tracy: rich edson, thank you very much. that notion that their paycheck is dangling, you have got to believe is a little bit after fire. ashley: gets
boehner noticed it was the obama administration that brought it up so do you guys feel that maybe this, you know, i don't want it's a ploy, but maybe the best bargaining chip, ironically enough, it's something that the republicans hold dear to stuart's point. >> back to the budget control act of august 2011, the 1.2 trillion in cuts, that was the agreement, and then, of course, you're right, the baltimore add obama administrationmented to fore stall that. they have to take place march 1st. that's the agreement made. we spend too much money. we do not have a revenue problem. stuart: $100 billion cut, march first, military and health spending, cut it, and you say do it. all right. congressman, republican, tennessee, thank you very much for joining us. >> thank you. stuart: buy season tickets to the favorite team, and if the team sinks or stinking, you get some of your money back. maybe the new york gelts should take note. the owner of the team offering that discount. there is a team owner who is offering discount to season ticket holders, and he's next. ]s joe woods' first day of work. a
, john boehner and the republicans do. neil. neil: not at all. carl cameron, thank you very much. it is probably a very good thing that the markets are closed today. this is republicans pushing back the debt ceiling for another few months. it would essentially be pushing it into may 2 sort of give more wiggle room to both sides to come up with either the spending cuts and/or tax increases. again, this constant kicking the can down the road does not necessarily get the rating agencies off your high needs. as this president, a couple of hours from now, start reviewing a parade in front of them, people will likely be seeing a parade of wall streeter's in very few hours wondering when the specifics will be coming. you are looking at bill clinton and his wife hillary. they will, of course, be part of this luncheon as well. jimmy carter is there. the two bush presidents are not, senior and junior, did not make this event today. that is not an on nominally, it is not all custom for them to come. then, again, a late 2 million americans crowded this mall four years ago. far less than half
